A simple little touch of VA gives this wine a wild, fun vibe. More beaujolais like than other Oregon styles out there.

Ripe red cherry with some earthy notes. Nice sweet spices and good balance on finish.

Tremendous value for people that want an elegant Pinot Noir. The aroma is intense with bramble fruit and cranberries; with air, more tobacco and forest emerged. High acidity with a clean, light body and high-tone finish. The wine is unfiltered which I think is extremely nessessary to retain complexity in Pinot.

Subtle and fresh. Light Pinot with lots of depth which is surprising. Everything is very subtle in a great way. Not a meat wine. More delicate accompaniment is required to let this shine.

I don't know if I got a bad bottle, but this was undrinkable. Incredibly sour.

Light flavor for a red - dry and not sweet.
